‘Magical’ mathematics unlocks engineering honor for Sandia scientist

LIVERMORE, Calif. — Tamara Kolda of Sandia National Laboratories has spent a career finding mathematical patterns in data sets ranging from mouse neurons to crime statistics, so when she talks about how ‘magical’ the results seem, even experts in other fields take notice. Kolda was one of 87 members elected to the National Academy of […]

Hate to wait? Sandia looks to speed up climate research

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Presumably, Leonardo da Vinci could have saved a lot of time on his “Mona Lisa” if he had just slapped on two dots and a swoosh for a smiley face. But details take time. The same goes for running computer models and simulations. If you want oceans of calculations to study something […]

Sandia computational mathematician named SIAM fellow

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia National Laboratories computational scientist and mathematician John Shadid has been named a 2018 fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Shadid’s selection by SIAM was based upon his research on solution methods for multiphysics systems, scalable parallel numerical algorithms and numerical methods for strongly coupled nonlinear partial differential equations, […]
